Simple grilled chicken or fish in WLA or SM?

I need a restaurant tonight that can make a simple, low-cal grilled chicken or fish. Would like fun or nice date-worthy ambiance (so no California Chicken Cafe sort of place), and of course, great flavor. Any thoughts?

    1. Nook Bistro, hidden in the rear of the minimall on the S/E corner of Santa Monica Blvd. at Barry, one block east of Barrington. Excellent food and service, and a great value. If their online menu is still up-to-date, they have an arctic char or another fish, and a chicken paillard or a roast half-chicken, all for just under $20. Their entrees come with generous sides. They offer a good salad or soup or mussels or split mac'n'cheese as a delicious starter. Professional service. Twice the usual experience for half the price -- superlative value. My favorite go-to restaurant on the westside.

      1. The Fish Grill at Beverwil & Pico...definitely no frills, but great fresh fish with very little added...

          I was thinking of recommending this as well, however I believe that they are closed Friday nights and Saturdays.
